Terms & Conditions - Chart Acapella Downloads


Mix our Master Recordings with your own samples and sounds and legally release your New Recording on the stores and streaming services (iTunes, Beatport, Spotify etc.) We have obtained licenses from the original copyright holders (writers & publishers) to provide you with Chart Acapellas and we pay them each time our Master Recordings are downloaded or streamed. You must also obtain separate cover song licences from the original copyright owners, if you intend to release your New Recording commercially. Ask your label/distributor or Google “Cover Song Licensing”. Many distributors offer this service as an add-on to their standard distribution. You may rearrange the Master Recordings to conform to the style of your New Recordings. However, if you change the lyrics, the basic melody or fundamental character from the original, then this would be considered a derivative work and not a cover song. In this case you would need a custom licence direct from the original copyright holders.

We provide a selection of Chart Acapellas for pre-order. The status “Recording” means that we are currently in the process of recording and obtaining licenses from the original copyright holders. You can pre-order these acapellas and the downloads will be available soon. The status “Planning” means that we will start recording when a minimum of 20 people have pre-ordered the acapella. You can pre-order the acapella now for half price and you will get an instant 10 day membership with Unlimited Members downloads and 50% off royalty free & available chart acapella downloads. We cannot guarantee when acapellas with the status “Planning” will be made available. This depends on a number of factors, such as when enough people have pre-ordered, the vocalists availability and the time it takes for us to obtain a licence from the original copyright holders. We are unable to provide customers with refunds unless there is a proven fault with the product. Please make sure when you are making a purchase that it is what you want, as mistakes cannot be seen as a reason for refunds.
